Hello Ladies:
I can't believe it's already October, before you know  it the snow will be flying here in Wisconsin. Let's hope not. I have been busy with my personal business and still I have found the time to scrap a few pages.
    I want to start out with our challenge over at From Screen 2 Scrap. This month we are inspired with the movie poster  PSYCHO. How scary is that for the month of October.Perfect poster for Halloween.

1) Spooky house = 1 pt
2) A Silhouette figure = 2 pts
3) A one word title split in half = 3 pts

A friend on mine gets really crazy over Halloween she decorates her front and back yard.So I was lucky enough to see her Halloween Cemetery.
If you get chance this month stop over at

Now moving on to my challenges over at SOUL SCRAPPERS

My next challenge is a color challenge designed by Marisa.
1). Steel Grey
2). Saffron yellow
3). Certainly Celery


Here have the color challenge for the month of September.
So here is my take on her challenge:
I had found this special quote from Winnie -the- Pooh.

"If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together...
there is something you must always remember, you
are braver that you believe, stronger that you seem,
and smarter, than you think, but the most important
thing is Even if we're apart...I'll always be with you...."

Moving on the next entry I have done this past month.

Moving on the next challenge... WORD
Which is  my challenge for the Ladies over
Soul Scrappers
The word is

Here is my sample I did for word challenge.
I wrote this little poem for my page. Which reads:

"With screeching,
giggles in our
house all day
my peace comes
while Jennifer
snoozes away."
I had found this picture of Jennifer ,I want to say she is about
3 years.I couldn't resist on scrapping this for her album.

Next up we have the quote Challenge:
We  had to use  a phrase on our page
I used the word Laugh .

Walk to the edge

Listen hard
Practice wellness
Play with abandon
Choose with no regret
Continue to learn
Appreciate your friends
Do what you love
Live as if this is all there is. - Mary Ann Radmacher

Here is my entry for the quote challenge.

Moving along our next challenge is:
Ebony and Ivory

WHITE & SHADES OF BROWN, with a few touches of BLACK.
 Here is my take on that challenge. Now don't laugh when you see this picture of me. Granted it was taken back in 1983. I was with my younger sister Jane. It was taken down at Wisconsin Dells  at one of those Old Fashion Photography Studios.

Family stories make valuable heirlooms

Now we have our sketch challenge by Debi.
We had to add some buttons, stamping, and stickers;
added to this sketch:

Here is my take on this sketch:
"Study Buddies"

For my stamping I stamped the ABC's then added
some school stickers, and for my buttons I added
the Apple and letter A and number 2 buttons.
Can you believe how small Hannah is in this photo.
She was in 2nd grade.

 Moving on to the last challenge of September
we have the Song/Lyric challenge.

You must use a word....OR a couple of words...OR a sentence OR even the song title on your page

who's gonna tell you when
it's too late
who's gonna tell you things
aren't so great
you can't go on
thinking nothing's wrong
who's gonna drive you home tonight

who's gonna pick you up
when you fall
who's gonna hang it up
when you call
who's gonna pay attention
to your dreams
who's gonna plug their ears
when you scream

you can't go on
thinking nothing's wrong
who's gonna drive you home tonight

who's gonna hold you down
when you shake
who's gonna come around
when you break

The sentence I used was....."Who's gonna pick you up when you fall"

Can you believe this is Hannah climbing over a fence. She had gone to a football game
and she and her girlfriend didn't want to pay to get in,so make a long story short, she climbed over the fence.

Until next time which I say about 3 weeks, I leave this special message to all my scrapbook friends. A silly little poem about our scrap book lives.

                                     Just A' Scrappin"
How time does fly when having fun,
And so very little housework done.
My mind is busy as can be
Cause I'm just a'scrappin', don't you see?

Thinking of layouts all day long
Paper everywhere; supplies seem gone
Can't find anything, woe is me...
I'm just a'scrappin', don't you see?

Dishes piled high but can't quit now
Got a brainstorm and a wrinkled brow
But I'm content as I can be
Cause I'm just a'scrappin'
Have a wonderful day........
